In today’s episode of Will Smith’s hit Snap Original series Will From Home: Holiday Special, Will is joined by Alicia Keys to surprise Patrick Mock, a chef and manager in NYC’s Chinatown, an area that was hit especially hard by the pandemic.
In this second season of Will From Home, Will is spotlighting everyday heroes across the country for their acts of selflessness and bravery. During the pandemic, Patrick’s bakery (46 Mott in Chinatown) was one of the only places in the neighborhood that stayed open. He started making hundreds of free meals a day, delivering them to unhoused and elderly people in the area, and to a local hospital. Nearly a year later, Patrick’s still doing it.
Patrick’s story captured our hearts, and now Will is surprising him! In addition to Alicia Keys joining them for karaoke and Will surprising Patrick with a new Phat Scooter, Asian Americans For Equality donated $10k towards Patrick’s “Light Up Chinatown” initiative and Google granted him $50k from 1863 Ventures and Google.org and a year of coaching to support his efforts, along with new cooler backpacks to help get out his deliveries.

Tune in for more laughs, inspiration, heartfelt conversations and surprises from special guests Jason Derulo, DJ Khaled, Jill Scott, Lil Nas X, Liza Koshy, Ludacris, Black Thought, and Master P. who will join Will to honor inspiring individuals.
